Set in the later half of the 19th century around the western states of America bordering Mexico. A land plagued with disputes, lawlessness, gunfights and some of that periods most gruesome characters. An ex-Mexican army captain turned bandit, driven by a personal vendetta, has formed a mob of some of the most ruthless Mexican bandits to sweep a reign of terror through the land. First released in 2002, The WildWest mod of Return to Castle Wolfenstein is a first person shooter featuring Cowboys and Banditos fighting for control in the lawless American West of the late 1800s. This total conversion of RTCW includes period weapons, such as:

  • Henry repeating rifle
  • Colt revolving rifle
  • Harper's Ferry musket ( the sniper rifle of its time)
  • Colt pistol
  • A deadly volley rifle
  • A prototype handheld Gatling gun
  • To name a few.

Custom player models have been created for the 4 player classes: Doctor, Miner, Sheriff, and Soldier. Dozens of unique voice chats add to the fun.

A variety of Objective, CTF (capture the flag), StopWatch and Death Match mode maps provide plenty of gaming enjoyment. Blow the safe and steal the money from the El Drab town bank. Fight your way into the hacienda of the evil governor and eliminate him. Rescue your bible from Battle Creek city hall. Return little Pedro’s harmonica. Or, how about a port of Hummer’s Kung Fu Grip map? Or the famous Beach assault map from RTCW?

Slower player speeds and weapon fire rates make for a pleasant change of pace from the frantic frag fests of Return to Castle Wolfenstein. As players take damage, they move slower, simulating actual injuries. Playing The WildWest requires teamwork and different tactics, like sneaking around (so the jingling of your spurs doesn’t give you away) and hiding behind rocks and cacti. Running in, guns blazing, results in a quick, one-way ticket to Boot Hill cemetery!

The WildWest requires Return to Castle Wolfenstein version 1.41, with the WildWest mod installed. Visit The-wildwest.co.uk and check out screen shots, news and info, player tips, and of course, the download links! See ya’ll later pardner!

Personally, I use pathfinder: Atombrenner.de
But there is also a tool specially designed for Wildwest: Fortbravo.ath.cx
